of activity. these individuals reached out to us as they normally do. this was a routine engagement with the press as we normally do when these things are made public. >> the next paragraph says according to five people familiar with the call, brennan stressed that the plot was never a threat to the u.s. public or air safety because washington had inside control over it. >> inside control of the plot, yeb, that's exactly right. >> so based on that one would know that we had something inside. is that a fair statement. >> from that statement, it is known that that ied at the time was not a threat to the traveling public because we had said publicly there was no active plot at the time of the bin laden anniversary. >> would you agree with me that that disclosure resulted in the outing of an asset that shouldn't have been outed? >> absolutely not, senator. i do not agree with you whatsoever. >> how do you say that? >> what i'm saying is we were explaining to the american public why that ied was not, in fact, a threat at the time that it was in the control of individuals. when we say pos

process. but such should never keep us from carry out national security and. it could have devastating consequences for the safety of all americans. during my courtesy calls with many of you, i heard represented references to our trust deficit which has existed at times between this communit committeee cia. it would be wholly unacceptable to me. and i would make it a goal on day one of my tenure and every day thereafter to strengthen the trust between us. i have a reputation for speaking my mind, and at times in a direct manner, which some tribute to my new jersey roots. i hope that my candor will ensure that you get straight answers from me. maybe not the ones that you like, but you will get answers and they will reflect my honest views. that's the commitment that i make to you. i would like to say a few words about the importance of the men and women who serve in the cia. because of the confidence it requires, few americans will never notify the extraordinary sacrifices that these individuals and their families make every day. many risk their lives and at times have given their lives
concern and u.s. officials were hard at work around the globe trying to prevent regional tensions and animosity from turning into full-scale wars and ominously, the united states was about to face an upsurge in terrorist attacks that would claim hundreds of american drives in lebanon including a 49-year-old cia officers named bob ames, killed during a brief visit to our embassy in beirut and who at the time was my boss at the cia. during my 25 year career at cia i watched up close and participated in history being made in far off corners of the world and cia fulfilled its critical intelligence role collecting intelligence, uncovering secrets, identifying threats, partnering with foreign intelligence and security services, analyzing complicated developments abroad and carrying out covert action and attempting to forecast events yet to happen, all in an effort to protect our people and to strengthen america's national security. and throughout my career, i had the great fortune to experience firsthand as well as to witness what it means to be a cia officer. such as an analyst who had

a confidential 16-page memo that justifies the targeting killing of u.s. citizens abroad suspected of being terrorists. this decision to release the document came hours before brennan was to face a serious grilling by lawmakers outraged over the program. the biggest critic, democratic senator ron wyden who says the president has been stonewalling congress for years and suggested blocking brennan's nomination. president obama called wyden specifically last night. >> clearly, the president's call to senator wyden so unusual and trying to ward off what could be a calamitous hearing today. >> what standard will barack obama be held to after the pictures of the little children who were killed by his cone drone attacks are placed before the jury in the hague? >> i was encouraged last night when the president called and he said as part of this effort, he is going to try to drive a more extensive discussion about these issues. every american has the right to know when their government believes it's allowed to kill them. i don't think that, as one person said, that is too much to ask. >> so right no
is going to include a cyber element to it. that is going to be part of the weapon that will be used to cripple us in the event of an attack. and i have to say, the united states, as part of our strategy, looking at how we would go after an enemy, we consider the importance of cyber or the cyber element as important. so, yes, we are living in that world. i have said this, and i believe it. it is very possible that the next pearl harbor can be a cyber attack. you could, in fact, cripple, as i said, are power grid, our financial systems, with a cyber attack, and it would have one hell of an impact on the united states of america. that is something we have to worry about and protect against. >> good morning, mr. secretary. i am an international student from japan. i would like to ask your opinion on the island dispute between china and japan. it was revealed that the chinese vessel had lot weapons on the japanese navy. i want to hear how much you think an issue this was. >> i was just in that part of the world in the last few months. i had a chance to go to japan and visit with my count
armed service committee. this should begin in a second. let us watch. we will cavill and to hear from defense secretary leon panetta and general martin dempsey about the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi that resulted in the death of four americans. one week ago today, this committee heard from senator chuck hegel -- hagel to be the next defense secretary. the center of south carolina said he would put a hold on former senator hagel's nomination unless leon panetta agreed to testify. this is the first of two harris we will show you today. this and later this afternoon, the confirmation hearing for cia director nominee, john brennan, currently the counter-terrorism chief. >> good morning, everybody. we welcome secretary of defense leon panetta and the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff general martin dempsey to testify about the department of defense's response to the deadly terrorist attack on the u.s. temporary mission facility in benghazi, libya on september 11 and all of last year. the findings of its review following that attack, including lessons learned. i want to remi
mix joining us overnight. storm 4 meteorologist tom kierein joins us. tom? >> good morning. we've had that all morning long. and temperatures have not warmed up much. we're above freezing. there's a dampness to the air. 37 at reagan national. we're in the mid-30s around the metro area. arlington, fairfax, prince georges county. right near the freezing mark. southern maryland through central virginia, right there in the 30s. prince georges, arlington, fairfax, montgomery counties. as we look at what may happen, two storm systems converging off the jersey coast and forming a major winter storm which is going to be hitting new york city. hartford, providence, portland, maine, into new england. that's going to affect travel up that way and also maybe caution flight delays locally tomorrow. storm team 4 radar showing a few areas where there might be flurries trying to reach the ground in loudoun county, fairfax and parts of management county. most of that not reaching the ground. most of that is light flurry activity coming out before it reaches the ground. we could get that, we'll talk ab
despite the substantial progress made against them still seek to carry out deadly strikes strikes. u.s. computer networks are under daily attack by nation states. international criminal organizations, sub national groups and individual hackers. and regimes in teheran and po pyongyang remain bent on delivery systems rather than fulfilling international obligations or even meeting the basic needs of their people. yes, the cia's mission as important to our nation's security today as any time in our nation's history. in carrying out the mission, the men and women of the cia frequently asked to undertake challenging, perilous and, yes, controversial actions on behalf of the american people. the cia is not immune from the scrutiny of the efforts and i welcome a discussion of cia's past and current activities. if i am confirmed one of the highest priorities would be the committ committee's lengthy report of interrogation with now banned interrogation techniques. i have read the findings and executive summary of the 6,000 page report which raises a number of very serious issues. given the grav
be released. yet 83% of americans said they supported the president's use of drone strikes. i'm wondering is there any public pressure to be more transparent? is that going to happen now? >> that's really interesting. i mean, you cited that poll, 83% of folks agree with the drone program, its use at least overseas. there's a difference if this is used on our soil here, certainly no backing for that among americans, but so far you haven't seen the outcry of a public outcry in terms of this program being used to target americans overseas. i think this is the first big public airing of this issue that we've seen. we'll see obviously brennan take it up today and perhaps after that you'll have americans raising some concern, but so far there has been bipartisan concern i think on the hill. it hasn't extended to the american public, and even in some ways you have had a situation here where republicans have been the fiercest supporters of this program. some folks saying what about democrats also being in the president's corner if this was bush doing the same thing? would they have had a differen
crumbling of the soviet union. weapons of mass destruction were a concern and u.s. officials were hard at work around the globe trying to prevent regional tensions and an mos if is from turning in to full-scale wars and ominously, the united states about to face an upsurge in terrorist attacks to claim hundreds of american lives in lebanon including a 49-year-old cia officer named bob ames killed in a brief visit to our embassy in beirut and who at the time was my boss at cia. during my 25-year career at cia, i watched up close and participated in history being made in far off corners of the world. as cia fulfilled the critical intelligence roles, collecting intelligence, uncovering secrets, identifying threats, partnering with foreign intelligence and security agencies, carrying out covert action and attempting to forecast events yet to happen, all in an effort to protect our people and to strengthen america's national security. and throughout my career, i had the great fortune to experience firsthand and to witness what it means to be a cia officer. such as an analyst, who has t
justification for using drone strikes to kill american citizens. >> this is an encouraging first step, and especially because it comes at a time when the lines have blurred between the military and the intelligence field, and it's going to be so important to do robust congressional oversight in order to protect both our security and our liberty. >> senator widen is one of the senators who was pushing for the release of more noftion and it comes just hours before the confirmation hearing for john brennan. the white house counterterrorism adviser was the architect of the president's drone policy and one of its biggest defenders. >> it's this surgical precision, the ability with laser-like focus to eliminate the cancerous tumor called an al qaeda terrorist. >> i want to bring in "the washington post's" political reporter nia-malika henderson and politico's white house reporter carrie brown. good morning. >> good morning. >> this issue has been simmering for a while. why did the white house decide to do this now? >> well, this wasn't about to go away for the president and it was particula
expressed concerns that now that the strikes are being used at lower levels, arguably, that they are creating a backlash that is undermining the credibility of government and creating new terrorists when a neighbor or family member is killed in the course of the operations. do you agree with general mcchrystal and director hayden about the backlash of strikes from the targeted killings at this point? i am not talking about the initial strikes. >> that is something that we need to be mindful of in terms of reaction, any type of u.s. counter-terrorism activities that involve the dropping of ordnance. whether it is a remotely piloted aircraft or man, we need to take that into account, but i would not agree with those statements because what we have found in many areas is that the people are being held hostage to outcry that in these areas and have welcomed the work that the government has done to rid them of the al qaeda cancer that exists. >> finally today, this committee received the olc memos justification, labo that, many of us who have been on the committee longer th

's use of torture and for those controversial leaks reportedly from the obama white house. in his questionnaire for the senate committee, brennan admits he was interviewed about, quote, possible unauthorized disclosures of information to reporters about cyberattacks against iran and possible unauthorized disclosures of information to reporters about a foiled bomb plot tied to al qaeda in the arabian peninsula. let's bring in the political panel, chris anders, senior legislative counsel and michael isikoff. michael, a lot happened certainly since you broke that news of what was in this memo including this move by the white house. what do we make of at least what we're seeing right before bren anna nicole's confirmation hearing in regards to the white house's latest move here? >> well, first of all, it was an important step that the white house took because until last night, the official position of the administration is they couldn't even confirm or deny the existence of such a memo. in fact, they said that it's in and of itself was a classified matter so by putting out the stateme
as "fox & friends" starts right now. >>steve: what did you tell us? >>gretchen: good morning. talking about the blues brothers. i'm intrigued. >>brian: on the blues brother when they had the excuse my car had a flat tire, whatever they said real quick. but everyone has an excuse but rarely do people put all the excuses together. >>steve: until today. >>gretchen: each week we get hundreds of real estate questions from you asking how we can help you rebuild our dreams. this week our real estate expert bob hitting the road to try to answer. he is in fort myers, florida, where he's holding a free seminar. good morning to you, bob. what do you have for us today? >> i'm in fort myers. terrific cloud. they have been wonderful down here. love "fox & friends." love fox news. we're going to be talking about how we got here, where we're going, what the future is from lending to the real estate industry. the future of real estate in america. how the present situation is going to get worse and maybe better at times. we'll cover all those issues, take questions from the audience. the next three hou
allows us to invest in those things that we need to grow right now because that's also a deficit reduction agenda that's growing faster. and in order to have a balanced package that means that we've already done a lot of cuts. we've done some revenue now, and so the rest of the way moving forward we can do some additional reforms and make our health care programs work better and make them more efficient, and we can cut out programs that we don't need, but it also means that we've got to be able to close some tax loopholes and deductions that the average american cannot take advantage of, to raise the revenue, to actually do the job in a way that allows us to continue to grow. now, the reason this is relevant is because i gather and i haven't gotten this from first-hand sources, but from second hand sources in the press that our friends on the other side of the aisle, their position is we're concerned about the sequester. we recognize that just cutting the federal spending with the meat ax as opposed to scalpel is probably damaging and will damage our national security and will da

about how the project is crucial to u.s. energy security. working with canada for our energy rather than getting it from the middle east. the letter talks about thousands of jobs at the -- that the project creates, not only building this $7 billion pipeline but that all the jobs that go to the refineries and the other activities that go with it and talks about safety, efficiency and reliability. now, the letter concludes mr. president, we consider the keystone x.l. pipeline fundamentally important to the future economic prosperity of both the united states and canada. we strongly urge you to issue a presidential permit and act swiftly to approve the keystone x.l. pipeline, signed by governors -- now, remember, senator baucus and i have been working on the effort on behalf of montana. you have got nebraska here. governor heineman just sent a letter in. now here are some of the other governors on this letter. sam brownback from kansas, the governors of north dakota and south dakota, governor mary fallon from oklahoma, governor rick perry from texas. in addition to other governors that aren
to replace it now is for us to cut social security, cut medicare, and not close a single loophole, not raise any additional revenue from the wealthiest americans or corporations who have a lot of lawyers and accountants who are able to maneuver and manage and work and game the system. i have to tell you, if that's an argument that they want to have before the court of public opinion, that is an argument i am more than willing to engage in because i believe the american people understand -- i believe the american people understand that, yes, we need to reduce the deficit, but it shouldn't just be on the backs of seniors. it shouldn't be just on the backs of young people who are trying to get a college education. it should not be on the backs of parents who are trying to give their kids a better start in life. that all of us have to participate and that, in fact, it's important for us to make sure we've got a strong national defense and that we reduce our spending in a smart way. those of us who are luckiest in the society to close a few loopholes and deductions that the average american doesn
but there are those who really back john brennan. tell us their argument, why he's the man for the job. >> reporter: well he obviously worked a long time inside the cia he clearly enjoys the confidence of president obama, serving at his right hand if you will in terms of being his counterterrorism advisor, homeland security advisor. he has been with the president since the 2008 campaign and at the white house they're clearly emphasizing john brennan's resume'. >> the president believes that john bren that is uniquely qualified as a 25 year veteran of intelligence work. 25 year veteran of the cia, to lead that agency. and, as the president's top counterterrorism advisor these past four years, he has done extraordinary work in the effort to combat al qaeda. >> reporter: among the challenges for john brennan? if he comes out critical of the cia's actions during the bush years, he risks alienating those who worked so hard fighting terror all these years, the very people that he wishes to lead, jenna. jenna: big hearing today, mike. thank you very much, mike emanuel down on capitol hill today. jon: mean
. mike inouye joins us live in the newsroom with more on that side of the story and exactly how officers are trying to get the word out. >> good morning. the official term that you guys just used, blue alert. like the better known amber alert, this goes out to the general public. you see some of them here. this is lit up over interstate 80 in hercules. following a violent attack on a law enforcement offer, like this case, it's designed to get as many eyes as possible looking for the suspect and the suspect vehicle for a safe and hopefully swift capture. we have a picture released by the irvine police department showing both the truck and the suspect. though the alert started in southern california, it's statewide search. the suspect is said to be armed and dangerous. like the sign says, call 911 if you see a truck that matched that description. the gray nissan titan pick-up. police say it's quite possible that he has switched the license plates out by now. tips are coming in. there's a lot of information to vet. but thank you all for calling in, again, as the officers have said, call 911
